Hi, my name is Jerry Rusch. I am 19 and a future music major at FAU. At the age of 17 I was first selected to march with the Boston Crusaders, and now I am going to march again for the 2013 season. Please see below for more on what I'm trying to do.
The Boston Crusaders Drum & Bugle Corps, founded in 1940, is the third-oldest junior drum and bugle corps in the nation and is proud to be a founding member of Drum Corps International. The corps, composed entirely of brass players, percussionists and color guard members under the age of 22, travels over 10,000 miles each summer, performing in more than 40 competitions and exhibitions before a combined audience of over 300,000 fans.

The Crusaders’ mission is to provide its members an opportunity to reach their highest potential, both as a person and an artist. While providing a healthy balance between education and competition, the Crusaders seek to constantly challenge members to excel every day through a dynamic and unique combination of artistic, athletic, and life goals our members will not find elsewhere.

I marched with the corps previously in the summer of 2011 playing the marching snare drum. The experience changed my outlook on music and life forever. It has opened new doors for jobs, and performance. According to the rules of Drum Corps InternationaI, members must be under the age of 22 to participate. Being that I am the age of 19, my time is dwindling. Unfortunately, the reality is that this also comes with a cost. A cost that, after 2011, left me with little to no money, and I am still trying to scramble what I can to make this dream possible once again. All I am asking is for your financial support to help me live my dream that is to be a performer for thousands around the United States. Any amount is humbly appreciated. Thank you for your time!
